We want to give all Premium members their two-week early access regardless of what platform they play on. Thanks for your patience and we’ll see you on the Battlefield.

UPDATE 3/31: Battlefield 4 Naval Strike is starting to roll out for Premium members on PC today. We look forward to seeing you on the Battlefield!

UPDATE 3/27: Battlefield 4 Naval Strike is starting to roll out for Premium members on Xbox One today. We look forward to seeing you on the Battlefield!

UPDATE: We wanted to provide more detail about the delay of Battlefield 4 Naval Strike. We have delayed the PC version of Naval Strike because we are concerned that the combination of the pack and planned PC updates would increase performance issues on mid-range to high-end PCs. We are working hard to resolve that issue now. Additionally, we have decided to delay the Xbox One version of Naval Strike because we want to address issues in the animation system that hinder players from engaging targets in set circumstances using popular weapon configurations.

We know that many Battlefield 4 Premium owners wanted to play Naval Strike today. However, we didn’t want to release the new content until we believed it was quality content.

We are trying to resolve these problems as quickly as possible and hope to release the update in early April for Xbox One and PC. We also want to remind Xbox One and PC owners of Battlefield 4 Premium that they will have two weeks early access for Naval Strike once it’s released. Thanks for your continued patience and passion for our games.

On March 25, Battlefield 4 Premium members on PS4, PS3 and Xbox 360 will be able to experience the ultimate sea-to-sea warfare in the third expansion pack for Battlefield 4. Battlefield 4 Naval Strike takes the intense and dramatic water-based combat introduced in Battlefield 4 to four all-new maps set in the South China Sea while introducing a new game mode and vehicle.

However, we are delaying the launch of Battlefield 4 Naval Strike on PC. We’ve detected an issue and it needs to be solved. Quality is our number one priority and we will not release Battlefield 4 Naval Strike on PC until we feel it meets the highest quality level possible. Once we have a confirmed date for PC, we’ll be sure to update those players on our official channels. We appreciate your patience and look forward to seeing everyone on the Battlefield.

Four all-new maps:

• Lost Islands: Blow open a crashed passenger plane and capture fishing villages across these tropical islands.
• Wave Breaker: Drop a submarine on your foes as you infiltrate a naval base or rush between shipping docks and rocky islands on this massive map.
• Nansha Strike: Wage war across stormy seas in the largest ocean stretch in a Battlefield map yet.
• Operation Mortar: Storm an abandoned cliff-side resort, or get lost in the breathtaking vistas in this map.

Battlefield 4 Naval Strike also lets you re-live the classic Titan Mode of Battlefield 2142, with the new Carrier Assault game mode. Your objective is to destroy the enemy team’s carrier before they infiltrate and destroy yours. You start out fighting a big-scale war with sea, land, and air vehicles controlling the map, and then everything evolves into an infantry-focused, close quarter fight inside both carriers at the same time! Learn more about Carrier Assault in this blog post on Battlefield.com.

Water-based combat has always been a vital part of the all-out war in Battlefield, and with the introduction of the amphibious hovercraft vehicle, your possibilities to dominate the sea will be even greater. Additionally, you can wreak havoc with five new weapons, two additional gadgets and ten assignments.

Get a head start with Battlefield 4 Naval Strike by becoming a Battlefield 4 Premium member. This will grant you early access to the upcoming Battlefield 4 expansion packs, new weekly content, and exclusive personalization options. Learn more at http://www.battlefield.com/battlefield-4/premium.

Wow fixing the game before release. Thats something new for you DICE!
"quality is our number one priority"...lolz
All right, good on you for delaying if not ready.... but.... a little late in the warning department. Are you telling me that you couldn't see it was not ready until the date of release? I worked a government job for many years and even they would have sent out a warning faster than the last minute. I'm sorry, I love this game, but every day it gets more frustrating. My son gave up on the game already and he is as hardcore as I am. I honestly don't understand how you guys operate. Management has a LOT to answer for. Honestly, people should be fired as this is another debacle after months of debacles. You had a great engine for bf3, you had tons of people playing beta, you had legions of fans, and you have pissed it all away. I can't believe that a company can continue to operate this way. Finish this and release it fast. PC gamers last longer and are more loyal than console players so concentrate there!
take your time
"Delaying for PC" Alright then see you in 2 months
when has QUALITY ever been in bf4, what a joke.
So much for Premium it appears you only give a shit about consoles ports these days
delay means breaking consumer agreement, taking "quality is # 1" as a shield, this is DICE
this is not acceptable... the update should have been released today... but instead they wait until the date it should be released to tell us it has been delayed... this is just not acceptable. I have loved the franchise until this very instant.
Un-real.... once again console over pc... fucking premium for pc is a god damn joke......
"Quality" is our number one priority.... you misspelled money
Its all a DRAMA, faith in EA/DICE is already LOST. Pre ordering BF4 and premium is my greatest regret of all time.
Did that post say something about quality is our #1 priority?? Lmao
HOOAH FOR NO REASON! (Fix the game post #1Billion)
DICE. As disappointed as I am that PC players are getting shafted again after paying for premium I am glad you are acknowledging a problem with it. If only you would have done that with Battlefield 4, or China Rising, Or Second Assault. Or every single patch. Every single damn patch something breaks that is almost worse than what was broken before. I don't understand how a professional company with hundreds of people working for you can screw a game this beloved up so badly. Don't get me wrong I love the game, but I mean damage has been done that I don't think can be repaired. Especially if you try and put a battlefield game out every year, or every two years. Please DICE, tell EA to fuck off and take your time. Make a quality game again. No more broken patches, no more broken DLC that we PAY FOR. No more 50 dollar premium.
DICE STOP DELETING PEOPLE'S COMMENT. HOORAH THIS SO DICE SEE IT KIDS!
I like you guys are doing that but the issues should've been addressed earlier and been worked on the release of the DLC. Not only that but you guys decide to announce this just a couple hours before the release. Im happy you guys are addressing the issues but It better be worth the patch. As in, not include 10000 more bugs.
Rent servers for Consoles!!!!
please give HOAHH i never got it before
DICE you do realize that theres a very good argument that you knew the entire time it wasnt ready, right? But EA and yourselves knowing you werent ready decided to wait until the last minute to "discover" a few issues that shouldve been found months ago? No, it doesnt hold up to any sensible argument if you actually hope to pretend to call yourselves professionals at what you do. So take your time, I have absolutely NO faith in you DICE, or your publisher EA to EVER accomplish what you say you will in a timely, responsible, professional manner because you have failed time and time again to deliver on the minimal hopes of the PC community that has carried you for more than a decade now. You can no longer fail me because that is all I expect from you at this point--I just want you to realize that your future failures and lack of presales, preorders and premium will be well deserved by you. And BTW Quality cannot be your "number one priority" when you fail this hard this often.
Way to alienate PC players once again. I doubt you guys will be able to fix this so called issue
If they are delaying it for PC I hope they add in an extra 30 seconds to escape the carrier. After all we both deserve it and have system capable of handling it. Dice please.
ATTENTION - All BF4 PC Players.. Please take a ticket and wait patiently.... we will be with you shortly. In the meantime , please make full use of the live feed provided so you can watch console players enjoy the latest map pack. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused , but we urge you to tell us how much you appreciate us and our ongoing support . "Quality is is our number 1 priority " . Not you ! .. :) Best regards , The D-Team. :) haha
I don't know if this is the first time you've delayed a downloadable content or a game to fix a potentially crippling issue, but I hope you guys understand that there are many players, like myself, who are willing to be patient for you to correct the bugs and glitches in Battlefield 4. Patience is a virtue. Especially in business. We didn't buy this game for the sake of being anti-COD -- we brought this game expecting quality. The ball's in your court, DICE and EA. Prove us naysayers wrong.
OMG Dice is actually Testing before they release now!
HA! Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
Classic DICE troll! ... nice one guys, you got me this time.
Pokemon FTW
Alright guys, screw the megalodon hunt thing. Hunt for Flight MH370 on the new DLC maps, SOMEONE CALL JACK FRAGS UP IN DIS.
